Rules for Web Traffic

Rules act on web traffic to enforce your web policy. They block access to web objects, for example, if they threaten the security of your network, and allow access to useful objects.

The rule actions are:

  • Block — The traffic is blocked, and rule processing stops.
  • Bypass — The traffic is allowed, and rule processing stops. Web requests that are allowed go directly to the internet.
  • Skip — Rule processing skips the remaining rules in the rule set and continues with the next rule set.

The following table includes an example of each rule action.
